Lordi have driven me to sin...

...is betting a sin? I'm not entirely sure.

In anycase I've never placed a bet at a bookmakers before but this afternoon soon me wander in to Ladbrooks and place a £10 bet for Lordi to win the Eurovision Song Contest tomorrow night.

The odds were 9-1, which basically means if they do win I'll be £90 richer.

Thought I'd spice up the evening a little bit more and I actually do think they're in with a very good chance of clinching it.

We'll see :p

I got them at 10-1 from paddypower.com. :D

Only a fiver though. Had to back Munster for tomorrow, which took precedence.

Is that the GAA? And is GAA proper football rather than just the shite Beckham does?

Egad, Lordi were 16-1 until the bookies could re-arrange the odds. It's worrying/heartening that the UK press are supporting Finland more than the Brit entry.

And GAA = Hurling and Gaelic Football. Gaelic football is a very different game to soccer. It's a lot more physical and less pretty. A man's game if you will. ;)

Of course gaelic football is.. Proper/masochistic/suicidal.. rather than a bunch of pansies taking a dive because they can get away with it.

Hurling is better. Going onto a field with 29 other men holding 3 foot lenghts of ash with the aim of hitting a small, and very very hard, ball while wearing little (or usually no) protection has to be a manly sport.

Did I mention those lenghts of ash have two bands of metal on the end of them?

Any game allegedly played by armies of Sidhe is OK by me :)
